Summary

Philanthropist, investor, and technology pioneer Jean Case brings to life the five "Be Fearless" principles common to the people and organizations that change the world.

This audiobook is a call to action for those seeking to live extraordinary lives and bring about transformational change.

When National Geographic Chairman Jean Case set out to investigate the core qualities of great change makers, past and present, from inventors to revolutionaries, she found five surprising traits all had in common. They weren’t wealth, privilege, or even genius. It was that all of these exceptional men and women made a big bet, took risks, learned from their failures, reached beyond their bubble, and let urgency conquer fear.

Be Fearless mixes storytelling and strategy, practical tips and inspiration, to teach individuals and organizations how to put these five principles to work so they, too, can spark the sorts of remarkable breakthroughs that change the world.

Cliches, but some good tips

Like a lot of self help books it has lots of inspiring sentences that make you feel good but appeal to cliche and fluffiness. Some good mind-training tips though!

Most Inspiring Call to Action for Normal People

This book by Ms. Jean Case is exactly the motivation normal people need to take action in their communities and across the globe. The life stories she brings to light are diverse and show how the most critical factor is caring enough to make a difference. Thank you so much....I knew I was missing something to restart my drive to make a difference...now I found the kid inside me again, who said, "I dare you."

Not what I expected

A collection of one to two paragraph stories about people who have done things to change the world in one way or another. If you need some feel good motivation this is for you. If you want substance find something else.

Woke waste of money

The author rehashes well known entrepreneurial stories and mixes them with the woke misdeeds of various misguided foundations for a colossal waste of money.

The dawn of the New American Dream and its birth to the renowned entrepreneurs and their dedication is very well-prescribed in the book and I am more than happy to meet the author in person at an upcoming Virginia Tech’s Groundbreaking Event for Innovation Campus at Alexandria, VA as an invited Alum!
